# Node Configuration
This is a short guide on the most important settings for setting up your node. The configuration files mentioned are located in the
~/.terrad/config/ directory, and will contain many more items not addressed here. However, as those files are well-documented in the comments preceding configuration lines, please consult those files.
# General Settings
# A custom human readable name for this node moniker = "cx-mbp-will.local"
# Minimum Gas Prices
You set this parameter as a measure against spam.
# The minimum gas prices a validator is willing to accept for processing a # transaction. A transaction's fees must meet the minimum of any denomination # specified in this config (e.g. 0.25token1;0.0001token2). minimum-gas-prices = "0.01133uluna,0.15uusd,0.104938usdr,169.77ukrw,428.571umnt,0.125ueur,0.98ucny,16.37ujpy,0.11ugbp,10.88uinr,0.19ucad,0.14uchf,0.19uaud,0.2usgd,4.62uthb"
# P2P Settings
# Seed Mode
The node operates in seed mode. In seed mode, a node continuously crawls the network for peers, and upon incoming connection shares some peers and disconnects.
# Seed mode, in which node constantly crawls the network and looks for # peers. If another node asks it for addresses, it responds and disconnects. # Does not work if the peer-exchange reactor is disabled. seed_mode = false
Dials these seeds when we need more peers. They should return a list of peers and then disconnect. If we already have enough peers in the address book, we may never need to dial them.
# Comma separated list of seed nodes to connect to seeds = "email@example.com:26656,firstname.lastname@example.org:4444"
# Persistent Peers
Dial these peers and auto-redial them if the connection fails. These are intended to be trusted persistent peers that can help anchor us in the p2p network. The auto-redial uses exponential backoff and will give up after a day of trying to connect.
persistent_peers_max_dial_period is set greater than zero, pause between each dial to each persistent peer will not exceed
persistent_peers_max_dial_period during exponential backoff and we keep trying again without giving up.
# Comma separated list of nodes to keep persistent connections to persistent_peers = "email@example.com:26656,firstname.lastname@example.org:26656"
